Mama - Madame Zodiac (1950)

An episode of "I Remember Mama" called "Madame Zodiac". Picture quality is awful, perhaps even horrific. Actual show is great, perhaps even wonderful. With some original commercials. Episode aired during 1950. A 50s-era show set in the 1910s, uploaded in the 2010s....think about that. May give you the sudden urge to drink coffee.

Run time 29 minutes 24 seconds
Audio/Visual sound, color

Subject: Good Show
MAMA was a well-written show from the early days of television. This episode deals with the subject of scams and con-artists. Scams have gotten more sophisticated, but they are still something to look out for.

A fake fortune teller teams up with a distinguished looking gray haired gentleman to try to cheat Aunt Jenny out of her money.

There is a lot of belief in psychics still today and people who claim to have real psychic ability still manage to cheat people.

Original air date: 1950.
Cast: Ruth Gates (Aunt Jenny).
From IMDB.
Do not forget that this episode was done in 1950; 62 years ago.
This is a very good written; well acted episode. It is a shame that we didn`t have series with simple valor but good valor today. It is a very good old time television.

Subject: First Episode?
This series premiered in July of 1949, yet you say this is the first episode and also say it's 1950. Something's wrong here ...
